Other comments
This subject is especially indicated to Erasmus students who want to learn and work with Spanish and English language. This subject is not suggested to those Erasmus students that prefer travel to learning. It is required for more than 90% of attendance in classes. The level of Spanish is the equivalent to C2. Moodle data will be in English ( videos, tasks, readings) and masterclasses will be in the Spanish language.
